African Center for behavioral sociology : Mohamed VI Polytechnic University
The African Center for Behavioral Sociology is a research center founded in 2019, in the Faculty of Governance, Economics and Social Sciences at the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University of Benguerir. The center aims to address issues of social, economic, political, cultural, and environmental importance for public policy in Morocco and in Africa more broadly. This ambition is grounded in the use of recent developments in behavioral science, with perspectives and methods from the social sciences. Using both behavioral and social science allows the center to deploy a rich and varied range of original investigation techniques to determine relevant parties’ opinions, convictions, preferences, and reasoning. Further, the aim is to anticipate these parties’ reactions to political measure and determine the consequences of these reactions at the collective level. The center thus provides renewed resources for rigorously determining measures that are capable of effectively meeting the objectives of public policy. This research makes it possible to understand the nuances of the local environments, and thus avoids importing reasoning or solutions that were designed for contexts outside of Africa.
